And literally dozens of Inocybe fastigiata , in all stages of growth .
When we arrived at the last job , on the edge of a Barley field , recently harvested , we disturbed a pair of Roe deer , but they were across the other side of the field before I could get the camera out . On a pair of old Oak trees , I found two examples of the same fungi , at different stages of growth . They are Sulphur Polypore-Laetiporus sulphureus ( aka. Chicken of the Woods ) .
This is a young specimen which hasn't coloured up yet .
And this a mature specimen , which was about 50/60 cm. across .
Once again , when we arrived the Barley field was full of Wood Pigeons , feeding on the spilt grain , and supported by many Collared Doves , but apart from Tits and the occasional Nuthatch , things were quiet . We are back on the field again tomorrow , so I will look out for the deer as we arrive .
